Gregory Henriquez is the Managing Partner of Henriquez Partners Architects in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and a leader among a new generation of architects who are reintegrating ethics and activism into the discipline. His work is founded on the belief that meaningful architecture must be a poetic expression of social justice. Gregory's socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable projects are having a major impact on shaping local communities. He recently completed the socially inclusive Woodward's Redevelopment in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside - a project that is bringing new density and vital body heat to the area. The project is unprecedented in Canada due to its scale, humanitarian aspirations, and complexity. It was awarded a 2011 AIBC Special Jury Award for Outstanding Programming and Place-making, and the National Design Exchange Gold Medal. Currently, Gregory is the Design Architect for TELUS Garden, which will bring Vancouver its first LEED Platinum-certified office tower. Gregory's work has been honoured with numerous design awards, including BC Lieutenant Governor's Medals in Architecture for the Coal Harbour Community Centre and Bruce Eriksen Place, and a Governor General's Medal in Architecture for the Lore Krill Housing Co-op. He is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
